    I agree. In leagues like this age is a huge factor in the deal, nevermind I think your team doesnt have anyone to replace Verlander. In a vaccum Bautista is better, but by looking at your team I would say no thanks
    Hoping Rivera can pitch forever!

    Its unbelievable how many owners have no idea what they are doing. Someone in my league dropped Aramis Ramirez, in the midst of his .300/25 season last year.....huh? I'm not a fan of Stubbs, but there is no doubt he should be on a team and could even possibly be used as trade bait.

    Yeah we don't usually get too many panic drops and having both AVE & OPB as Cats makes Stubbs less valuable but I agree he needs to be owned in a 12 teamer.

    Re: Fantasy Baseball General Discussion 2012

    Anybody seeing any worthy waiver/FA claims out there right now? Any on the closer market?

    I picked up Danks (so-so 1st 2 starts) and Lohse before day 1. I don't know if any of you all have him, but Jose Altuve has been burnin up my bench. I play in a 12 team 6x6 league and his BA and OPS numbers are good. His runs are above average for a crappy team. No power or SB as of now, but he's projected to get 15-20 SB's.

    depends on who is available.

    Shafer & Martinez from HOU have potential and are under 30% owned in yahoo
    Laroche has 25 HR bounce back potential and under 30% owned
    De Aza is under 50%, I like him for AVE/SB and his early power is a nice bonus but probbaly won't last.
    Kyle Seager 3B/SS eligible is off to a nice start but I know nothing about him to recommend him.
    If you have a deep bench Seth Smith/Johnny Gomes is an interesting R/L platoon combo.
    Brian LaHair has potential.

    Fernando Rodney seems to be running with closer gig but he's generally bad at pitching.

    Danny Duffy & Tommy Milone both had great starts but faced bad offenses. They bear watching. Especially Duffy who has some good K potential.

    I'd grab Henry Rodriguez if he's available and you are speculating on saves.

    Sell high. His 3.9 BB/9 speaks of a correction coming at some point. Dominating two bad free swinging offenses is nice but if you can flip him for a can't miss bat, I'd do it without thinking twice.

    Re: Fantasy Baseball General Discussion 2012

    In one of my 12 team roto leagues, I had 4 closers and was only able to use 3 on a given night. I was in need of an SP since my rotation looks like this - CC, Garza, Cueto, McCarthy, Chacin, Buchholz. The moment Broxton blew his save the other night, I hit "accept" on the offer I received - Hughes for Broxton. Thoughts?

    Also, my lineup is the strength of the team, except for steals - if any of you remember, this was the league that I traded Strasburg and Gardner for Pedroia...so basically I created my team weaknesses by going for overall value.

    The lineup -

    Wieters
    Prince
    Pedroia
    Longoria
    Jeter
    Tex (inf)
    Hamilton
    Beltran
    Choo
    Fowler
    Pena (utl)

    Any suggestions? I want to see if Pena can continue this for another week or so before I consider really shopping Tex to fill holes.

    Hughes for Broxton is a decent gamble. If Broxton saves 35 games with 100 Ks it will look dumb but there is just as much chance of Holland closing by mid-May as there is of Broxton keeping the closer gig all year.

    Tex for a top OF would make sense for your team I think if you could pull it off.

    Thanks. My other closers were more established (Hanrahan, Walden, Nathan), so it was an easy call to dump Broxton and open up the valuable roster spot for an SP with some upside.

    You don't think it would be wiser to trade Tex for an SP?

    I guess if you can land an ace. I just worry about the DL time you are likely to have with 3 of your OF and I'm just not sold on Fowler as an everyday option. So OF or SP, either would make sense.

    Thanks a ton, Tripper!

    Schaefer was picked up just recently. Martinez was drafted.
    LaRoche was picked up a day before you wrote that. Drafted him late last year. I forgot he was back from shoulder surgery.
    Closers get swiped up so quickly. Rodney and Rodriguez have been on teams for the entire time.

    I added Seager, LaHair, Duffy, and Milone to my Watch List. Any other Watch List/potentials you guys seeing out there?

    Well said, Tripper. I'd try to land an OF with speed. Maybe Michael Bourne?

    Bourne is buy low candidate, not someone you deal tex for.
    Someone offered me Scherzer for Bourne yesterday. Umm, no thanks. I konw Bourne is something like 3/24 but he did swipe 60 bags last year and Sherzer is almost a 1 cat K guy.

    edit: and as I type this Scherzer is dominating Boston

    edit 2 - well he was - oops

    I'm thinking about dealing Alex Gordon. He's K'd in over half of his AB's and there is talk of a platoon against LHP's. I'm wondering if 2011 was an aberration.

    The beard to be visiting the butcher.
    Casilla seems to be the add is SF, though Romo is the better pitcher.

    I picked up Romo....Casilla came into a tie game in the 8th inning last night-not exactly a spot to use a closer. Romo has better numbers than Wilson and I think Bochy is just opening it up and hoping Romo runs with it. (Romo had 70 strikeouts and 5 walks in 48 innings last year. Crazy numbers)

    Looks like Jason Heyward is good again. If you can steal him from someone in your league that might not fully believe in him it might be the time to move on him.

    I traded him for an 8th round pick when the season started.....and I'm good with it. I just traded the 8th round pick for Lance Berkman so it worked out well for me.

    Yeah but Casilla closed last year when Wilson was nursing an injury. I agree Romo is the better choice but we'll see how that shakes out.

    As long as the Giants are alive in the NFL playoffs I'm having a hard time getting back in to the baseball draft mode but I'm sure I'll be in full swing before too long.
